Another day, another episode of the Keystone Kops. Another scandal, another ‘probe.’ Then Obama will say he’s ‘madder than hell,’ then he’ll go golfing.

Over on Twitter:

Via Fox News.

The White House has launched an internal probe after its press office inadvertently outed the top CIA official in Afghanistan — a national security blunder that could put that individual at risk.

A spokeswoman with the National Security Council confirmed to Fox News that the White House chief of staff asked White House Counsel Neil Eggleston to “look into what happened” and make recommendations on “how the administration can improve processes and make sure something like this does not happen again.”

The brief statement from the National Security Council was the first on-the-record comment made by the administration since the CIA official’s name was disclosed over the weekend. The internal review, though, reflects the severity of the error.

The official’s name, identified as “chief of station,” was included in the White House press office’s basic list of senior officials President Obama met with during his surprise visit to Afghanistan’s Bagram air base on Sunday. The list of 15 names apparently came first from the military, and was circulated by the White House press office.

    Exactly ! Larry, Moe & Curly can help also. The dumb bastard will say he will not rest until he has gotten to the bottom of this. A year from now whoever the poor pathetic press secretary is will say ‘dude that is sooooo last year.’

    My original comment is totally *expletive deleted* but I will say this: The Keystone Kops would be a “humongous” (as per the “genius” anti-Semitic prof) improvement over the maroons currently in the WH.

    Re government oversight; G.Greenwald interview with Deutsche Welle where he discusses that he wanted to put today’s journalism under the spotlight.

    Considering that the government has to rule on the appropriateness of the Keystone pipeline, the Obama administration is literally the Keystone Kops. Literally, Joe.
